sophisticated country wedding series: 6: mad hatter cake

I couldn’t help myself! When will I ever again have the chance to create a two and a half foot tall pile of sugar? I just had a hard time taking this task so seriously. It’s cake! It just didn’t seem right mixing formality with something that brings just about everyone complete joy when endulging in a slice…or two. I wanted something fun…something a bit on the crazy side. A Mad Hatter inspired cake was just the ticket. I mean…why not?

The tricky part was finding a cake topper that would compliment the unpredictablity of this cake. I searched high and low…but just could find what I was looking for. SO…I decided to make one myself. It’s not the most professional looking topper but it works.

It sure was fun slicing into that cake.
